Der Hollywood-Boulevard in Los Angeles bei Sonnenaufgang: Der Vagabund Leo Pomerantz überquert die Fahrbahn, die Tänzerin Rita Luna tritt aus einem Striptease-Lokal auf den Gehsteig, und auf der anderen Straßenseite steht - der Tod. Seine Sichel, mit der er Leo treffen wollte, verfehlt ihr Ziel und bringt stattdessen Rita zur Strecke. Die will sich mit dieser Ungerechtigkeit nicht abfinden und bittet den Tod um eine zweite Chance. Also ordnet der einen ungewöhnlichen Wettbewerb an, um zu entscheiden, wer sein Leben lassen muss ... Michael Köhlmeier erzählt raffiniert und mit verlässlichem Gespür für eine gute Geschichte - amüsant, tiefgreifend und gleichzeitig von einer wohltuenden Gelassenheit.

Nominiert für den Deutschen Buchpreis 2012 Patrick Roth erzählt die unerhörte Geschichte des Joseph von Nazaret als die eines Zweifelnden, er erzählt von Josephs tiefem Glauben und seinem Ungehorsam wider Gott. Zugleich spürt "SUNRISE" der Möglichkeit eines Neuanfangs nach. Jerusalem im Jahre 70 nach Christus: Römische Truppen drohen die Schutzmauern zu durchbrechen. Die Belagerung der heiligen Stadt bildet den Ausgangspunkt dieses bildmächtigen Romans, dessen Bogen sich bis in die Zeit vor Jesu Geburt spannt. Im Mittelpunkt der Ereignisse steht Joseph, der Mann der Maria, von dem die Evangelien berichten, dass er Träumen gehorchte, als er Frau und Kind annahm. Patrick Roth entwirft ihm ein Leben voller Spannungen, ein Drama zwischen Mensch und dem Numinosen. Dreizehn Jahre nach Jesu Geburt fordert Gott ein äußerstes Opfer von Joseph. "Wo ist da Gerechtigkeit, dass ich's verstünde?" klagt er angesichts des ungründlichen Willens Gottes. Wird Joseph dieses Opfer wirklich auf sich nehmen können? In raffiniert ineinander verwobenen Passagen zwischen Traum und Realität dringt der Roman in Erfahrungsräume vor, in denen vermeintliche Gewissheiten brüchig werden. Patrick Roths Erzählkunst geht von existenziellen Erfahrungen aus und zeugt von einer außergewöhnlichen Sprachkraft. Ein ästhetisches Erlebnis.

This is a broad survey of the history of the British Empire from its beginnings to its demise. It offers a comprehensive analysis not just of political events and territorial conquests but paints a picture of what life was like under colonial rule, both for those who ruled and for those whose countries came under British authority. There has been a lively debate in recent years about whether empires generally are good or bad things, and the British Empire has been very much at the centre of that debate, with a number of voices arguing that it was a kinder, gentler Empire than its rivals. This book speaks specifically to that debate, and also to a second and equally vigorous debate about whether anyone in Britain actually cared about the possession of an Empire.

The years between roughly 1760 and 1810, a period stretching from the rise of Joseph Haydn’s career to the height of Ludwig van Beethoven’s, are often viewed as a golden age for musical culture, when audiences started to revel in the sounds of the concert hall. But the latter half of the eighteenth century also saw proliferating optical technologies—including magnifying instruments, magic lanterns, peepshows, and shadow-plays—that offered new performance tools, fostered musical innovation, and shaped the very idea of “pure” music. Haydn’s Sunrise, Beethoven’s Shadow is a fascinating exploration of the early romantic blending of sight and sound as encountered in popular science, street entertainments, opera, and music criticism. Deirdre Loughridge reveals that allusions in musical writings to optical technologies reflect their spread from fairgrounds and laboratories into public consciousness and a range of discourses, including that of music. She demonstrates how concrete points of intersection—composers’ treatments of telescopes and peepshows in opera, for instance, or a shadow-play performance of a ballad—could then fuel new modes of listening that aimed to extend the senses. An illuminating look at romantic musical practices and aesthetics, this book yields surprising relations between the past and present and offers insight into our own contemporary audiovisual culture.

Sunrise is a tale of illusion, loss and renewal in a tragic age. Set in Manhattan, and in the fashionable beach towns of Long Island's East End, it follows the interwoven lives of three friends from the late 1960s to the present-exploring the confluence of art, commerce, politics and celebrity. With its perfectly rendered physical setting, Sunrise draws readers into the reality of place and the universality of myth in a daring, Modernist style. Stephen Dahl, the narrator of Sunrise, is a troubled child of the 60s, an expatriate American author living in Paris, an alcoholic who has stopped drinking but failed to recover his spiritual equilibrium. Watching the horrors of September 11th from his Paris apartment, he is struck by renewed patriotism which vanishes quickly as America plans to invade Iraq. But he is called home in the Spring of 2003 by the death of his former best friend and by the chance to see his former lover, the widow of his old friend. Thus begins Stephen's journey to a past that reveals complex layers of moral and spiritual responsibility to his country, his countrymen and himself. Stephen confronts an uncertain future by accepting the moral limits of despair and the power of compassion.
